MacOSX, Java DP102 fixes keymap issues? (re: tracker ID 10911)

OS X users with appropriate access from Apple can download Java 141 DP 102. It seems to fix the keymapping problems with German, Dvorak, and other keymappings.

Well, mostly fix -- I still can't get CMD-/ on my Dvorak keyboard to register as CMD-/, instead it's the un-mapped CMD-}

Things are much better, though!

Do all the menus and labels display correctly? There was a posting on
the Java-Dev list at Apple saying

I didn't want to install the DP untill I'm sure it won't break my copy
of Idea.

Careful the DP has other issues too, like it simply won't work with 8xx
builds, crashes, and has some other focusing issues with 3.0.x series. Just
know that it's not even beta, and while it looks like it's going into
Panther, Panther itself is not quite there yet either. They seem to be
making some nice progress though.

Boy, I guess I should have read Apple's lists before installing this DP.

On the other hand, I've used DP102 with IDEA 833 for two days now, without any problems cited above. Weird. I wonder why they aren't affecting me?

To get rid of the gibberish, edit your .IntelliJIdea/config/options/ui.lnf.xml so that the FONT_FACE is something like "dialog" or "ArialMT". My installation was initially displaying this behavior. I simply renamed my .IntelliJIdea directory, restarted IDEA and everything was fine. I then changed the FONT_FACE to "ArialMT". You may have the same problems printing also -- change the FONT_FACE in the .IntelliJIdea/config/options/print.xml to fix. I noticed that some fonts work, others do not. I haven't taken time to figure out why. Other than that, I have had no problems.
